We’re partnering with Arts Connect International to sponsor the 2019 Arts Equity Summit and present a panel “Loop-breaking: creating a virtuous cycle of public art production” to consider the challenges of creating truly community-oriented artworks and discuss barriers to entry for public art artists and audiences alike.
Leah Triplett Harrington is the newest addition to Now + There’s small but dynamic staff. Leah joined Now + There in January 2019 as a full-time Assistant Curator to provide crucial support to our projects, including the Public Art Accelerator. Bold curatorial vision is central to the work we do, and we’re thrilled to welcome Leah to N+T.
Public art reflects the value of equity in a town or city for all its members to be able to access contemporary art. I believe most artists, by nature, are cultural producers, hoping to share ideas, perspectives and curiosity. Interacting with art is an important social and personal experience and when shared publicly, has limitless impact.
Today we’re announcing our next panel discussion We act together: A panel exploring climate justice through art, policy, and activism.
